International Internships Enable Students to Work and Serve Across the World

Myesha Jamison, Class of 2018, says working on rural health care issues in South Africa this summer combines her interests in global medicine and public health.

This summer, Princeton undergraduate students are gaining new perspectives and opportunities through internships in a variety of fields in more than 50 countries through the University's International Internship Program (IIP).

IIP allows freshmen, sophomores and juniors to live and work abroad during the University's summer break. The program was established in 2000 with just seven student interns. Now, more than 200 participate.
